Who are we looking for?

Current Youth Venturers

Ashoka India's Youth Venture program works with the belief that one of the most effective ways to drive social change is to empower young people to realize their own ability to make positive social change.

We are looking for young minds who believe in pushing the boundaries of innovation to find answers to social problems and who exhibit traits like leadership and empathy.

Selected candidates receive support in the form of extensive mentorship and training through a structured program, and become part of Ashoka's Global network of Social Innovators & Entrepreneurs.

Who are we looking for?

To apply to become a Youth Venturer you must:
  • Be a young Indian aged between 12 and 20
  • Have already started an initiative that has a social impact
  • Embody principles of leadership, teamwork, empathy and creativity
The program is completely free and travel and accommodations for events will be reimbursed.
